IB197 Sweet Little Deer

Hello peeps!  Happy Thanksgiving again!  It's Thursday and time for a new Inspired By challenge! This is a color challenge, so although you can use the inspiration photos for "inspiration", it's really the colors we want to see:

And here's the optional sketch:

I did use the sketch as well as that cute little deer as the inspiration for my card today--check it out:

I am using the colors of Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Crumb Cake, and this little deer is fussy-cut from some retired DSP. I embossed the card with the Wintery EF, then sponged on a bit of Craft White ink.

The sentiment is from an old Artistic Outpost set called Frosty & Friends, cut with an Ornate Frame die; the snowflakes are cut using the Stitched Snowflake dies.  This little deer reminds me of cute!  I hope you'll find some inspiration from our photos as well!  Share them with us at Inspired By!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Cassidy made some goodies for the family last week:

I think it was a good thing I wasn't around to eat any...I would have gained a pound for sure!

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

What a darling card! I love how the embossed piece looks brushed with the Craft White ink and, of course, the star of the card, Bambi!
